Athletes - What do you want? Think about the goals you want to accomplish. Write down what you aspire to in sports. Be specific. Do you want to start in high school? Do you want to play in college? Do you want to be the best defensive player in your conference? Do you want to be a 40% 3 point shooter?
Knowing what you want is an important question to answer for yourself. Then, identify the work that will help you get there. Because that is what it is going to take to accomplish big goals in a competitive sport, WORK. You must build mental toughness, physical strength, skills, and a high level of understanding (high IQ). To develop all of these areas you are going to have to work extremely hard.
Knowing what you want will help you make a plan. How do you get what you want? Create a plan for the work that you will need to do consistently. And here’s the great part…ask those around you for help. Many people will step up and help you chase your goals, you don’t have to do it alone (coaches, parents, brother/sister, teammates).
Secondly, knowing what you want (it can change, but go ahead and ask yourself what it is today!) and seeing it in your handwriting will help you push through the tough times when you don’t feel like working or when things feel like they are going against you. These are the moments you own the greatness you want! Show up on the bad days and accomplish something that gets you closer to your goal.
Decide what you want. Then go chase it. Put in the blood, sweat, and tears to be the best version of you!
